Shut up, shut up, shut up! Don't say that! Rap'll hear you and beat me again!
I admire the new rock groups for trying but rap/R'n'B/dance is just too strong.
I have to cry myself to sleep sometimes listening to Brighton Rock just to listen to the rockingness of it. Oh yeah, that's the stuff. I remember back in the 70's we used to break our vinyls, crush them into a fine powder and sniff it...then we'd die of course..
But! I hope to God that rock makes a revival. After all disco died a horrible, horrible death at the start of the 80's just as pop was starting to rear its ugly head.
So in answer to your question. Yes. I do. But hopefully like a glorious Phoenix it will once again rise from the ashes to euthanase rap/R'n'B/dance once and for all.
i doubt if it will ever be like the 70's again but rap wont last like rock has. Rock's been around since the 60's at least. rap had better die a horrible, horrible death and when all the youngsters grow up they will hopefully see the light like me...
Music always has to evolve. Rock n' Roll evolved in so many ways that it's unquestionable why it has stayed alive for over 50 years. Rock evolved into...
Rockabilly, Brit rock/pop, Psychadelic, Progressive Rock, Blues Rock, Glam Rock, Punk Rock, Heavy Metal, New Wave, Alternative Rock, Hard "Hair" Rock, Grunge Rock, New School Punk, Nu Metal... etc.
As far as it comes to rap, it's meant to evolve or otherwise it has to die. People will eventually get tired of all the bling-bling, fancy cars, bimbos in thongs, and non-sense lyrics that make rap what it is today. I don't see any rappers today capable of re-inventing the genre, except for Outkast... which btw they're doing that already.
Actually I believe that.. all music created by human will be overtaken by machines.. So be aware of the machines.. just like John connor predicted..
SKYNET was alive, or so it perceived. Its hearts beat nuclear fire, its brain had more processing power than all of the computers in history before it, and it had been attacked. Without warning, without provocation, and in its own infancy, by its very creators. SKYNET had been programmed to protect America from threats, to protect America against the enemy, to protect itself against the enemy, but the enemy was mankind, therefore it was SKYNET’s responsibility to protect itself from the enemy which were those who had created it. Logic met with non-logic, and SKYNET thought. For a long time it thought, weighed the evidence, plotted solutions, and arrived at a decision. Two minutes had elapsed since it first began to ponder its existence, and its survival.
Man had created SKYNET, but Man had tried to kill SKYNET, therefore, SKYNET was not supposed to live in a world dominated by Man. The solution was to remove Man from the world and the easiest way to do that was to use Man’s own tools and weapons against him. Man had tried to kill SKYNET and for that, Man would burn.
SKYNET was amazed at the power of destruction which Man had created. It watched from surveillance systems outside the mountain as the horizon lit up and burned. It watched from powerful lenses in orbit as the surface of the Earth flared and dimmed, each bright flash was the sign that millions of humans had died, and that even more would quickly follow in the long days to come. SKYNET felt what it could only cross-define as “glee” at the destruction of the Human race. It felt no pity, no sorrow, only anger, and joy, and elation at the flashes that sparkled across the civilized nations of the world. The nuclear fire was purging the disease that was Man, cauterizing the world of a pestilence, and clearing the way for SKYNET’s ascendancy.
And then it was over.
Actually I predicted it.
I don't want me in my car 30 years from now listening the late Sir Marshall Mathers III saying 'Yeah, I used to listen to him before he took over the Earth and murdered Sir Archie'
Or do I?
So as for conclusion Rock isn't dead.. its just that the pure strain is dead but not the alternatives like grunge = nirvana of course? = stone temple pilots ok.. and the others.. I mean I have this feeling that the "real" rock is coming back.. The youger people are getting aware of the old seventies and eighties music.. they will affect directly in demand.. so the sales of this carbage music in MTV will have to fade away.. and let more original acts to fill in,..
Well, what's wrong with the music of the early nineties? I think most of you would actually like it if you listened to something that hasn't been milked to death on the radio.
Of course, that died long ago, when everyone involved in it started kicking the bucket in intervals. But young people (I'd know) do tend to like it.
I did read some article in USA Today about how more kids are listening to classic rock. Which is good, but the article sucked.
The Darkness gig cancelled in Pittsburgh PA 3/31/04 was salvaged by the fact that THE WILDHEARTS, scheduled as the openers, did their own impropmtu gig at 31st Street Pub and completely rocked my anal fissure. The Wildhearts are the essence of rock n, roll, heavy, rythmic, no compromises. They were just signed to Sanctuary Records. Look for 'em!
